The base shoe for this Nike Lebron 9 is almost like a shoe that wants to have a custom look but still has to be simple black and white. The colorway was designed by Miami based artist Freegums whose black on white graphic art style was created with different symbols relevant to Lebron James. Unfortunately it was only used to cover the inside mesh lining and in a textured look on the white paneling using white on white graphics. Hmm white on white? Now THAT makes a lot of sense. To give the sneaker a little more life, customizer C4 aka Conor Burns used his signature style on the previously black midsoles. These though were a customer request by NikeTalk.com member Memphisboi55 who wanted a bit of lettering to represent himself a la the Freegums artwork for Lebron. Improved? I think so.
